Climate vulnerability, social protection and early action: what are the linkages?
Wednesday, Dec 02, UTC 12:00 to 12:55
Organizer: Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre
|Social protection (SP) has been proposed as a policy instrument of direct relevance for dealing with emerging climate-related risks and vulnerability. This session will explore SP’s role in anticipating and mitigating the impacts of climate shocks, using interactive tools, ignite talks, participant polls and group annotation exercises. The objective of the session is to leave the audience with examples on how SP is currently being used across countries and what are the key aspects for different actors to keep in mind when linking climate risks and SP.|
